Hi Renu Vig, Language comes with practice. If one parent talks in English he will pick up. Watch English cartoons so that he picks up the language. Use the language liberally at home. You could also do the following- 1. Enrich his surroundings with interesting/informative books , posters or flash cards with English words. 2. You could get him to play n learn with you around activities like scrabble, board games, pictionary and so on 3. You could tell him interesting stories and also get him some simple and good story books, and co-read the story together 4. You could also get him a white wall/easel to write/scribble whatever he likes 5. Introduce new rhymes to him, and sing and play along 6. Do converse in english with him when you like, and help him pick the phonetics. It's a myth that a child can't pick english later, once he picks up the native language. In fact it's vice versa, children who are good with native languages pick a new language faster and better. Hope this helps All the best and do keep us posted.
